After that, it began to add desktop and web support, and now they have come with version 3 and are closing the loop by building Linux and macOS desktop support which is usually available.

We are announcing Flutter 3, the peak of our journey to deliver the multiplatform UI development across the phone, desktop, and web, “Tim Sneath, the director of the product and the UX for Flutter and Dart language, told me.”

The macOS adds the support for a universal binary so that the apps can run natively on the Intel and Apple Silicon chips.
